  January is National Radon Action Month !  T est Your Home-Protect Your Health

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. Radon is colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is naturally occurring in the soil that can get into our homes through small cracks and sump pumps and can build up to dangerous levels in our homes. Reducing radon levels in the home is easy and inexpensive.

Every home is unique due to its local soil, construction details and maintenance. A radon test is the only way to find out if your home has elevated levels of radon. Home testing kits are the best way for a home owner to find out if they have a radon problem and take steps to control exposure to the home if necessary.  You can purchase radon kits at hardware stores-but don't purchase the kits that are displayed on the bottom shelf as they can absorb radon from the floor.  Also, make sure the kit you purchased has not passed it expiration date.

Learn more information about radon from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

2014 Ebola Outbreak


The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. There were a small number of cases reported in Nigeria and a single case reported in Senegal; however, these cases are considered to be contained, with no further spread in these countries.

Two imported cases, including one death, and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States. CDC is working with other U.S. government agencies, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other domestic and international partners and has activated its Emergency Operations Center to help coordinate technical assistance and control activities with partners. CDC has also deployed teams of public health experts to West Africa and will continue to send experts to the affected countries.
